Common sense has, thankfully, broken out in relation to the venue for the Connacht U20 final. In fairness to them, Connacht GAA moved rapidly this evening to sort the issue and they’ve done it in the right way.
The final will now go ahead at Markievicz Park on Wednesday evening, where throw-in will be at the earlier time of 6pm. The game will be streamed live by TG4 on their website and they’ll then broadcast it in full on deferred coverage at 7.30pm.
This is obviously the right outcome so fair play to Connacht GAA for recognising so rapidly that the issue needed sorting and moving without delay to sort it.
Connacht GAA also announced this evening that tickets for Wednesday evening’s provincial decider will go online at 10am tomorrow – details here.
